Instead I consulted with a sales lady at my local health food store and decided to buy another type of vegan protein that she said was popular. I didn't want a meal suppliment, just pure protein. I'm vegetarian so I am concious of the need to get enough protein into my diet daily and I thought going vegan this time would be even more healthy.
The good news is that two scoops of my new vegan protein powder equals about 22g of protein. I just mix it with water and it ends up being only 4 weight watcher points. The bad news is, it taste bad. I describe it as watered down oatmeal with a side of chalk. Yummy, eh?
Now, the first time I tried it I added strawberries and some slenda. I drank it, but it wasn't great. The next few times I added bananas but no Splenda. Now it taste like oatmeal and bananas with a side of chalk. Drinkable, but still not awesome. I'm hesitant to add peanut butter or anything that would make my shake equal more WW points, but I need to find something that will make it taste better. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. I'm still going to drink them regardless, but it would be nice if they tasted better.
One top of my new protein powder, I also recently bought protein bars from Costco.
I tried this one this morning. It has 20g of protein and taste better than ones I have tried in the past. They equal 5 weight watch points which is a bit high, but because there is so much protein I thought I'd buy them anyway. For some reason I found this flavour (there are three flavours per big box) had a hint of cherry flavour in it even though it says it's caramel almond. Weird, but it's probably just my taste buds this morning.
I'd have it again, and that's a good thing considering I have a big box of them! Lol
